Boom Street Gets A Release Date


January 6th sees Nintendo Europe release Boom Street on the Nintendo Wii next year. Fortune Street, as its known in America, will be released December 5th, a month before we get our hands on it.

Boom Street is described as a Monopoly style game, except filled with characters from Dragon Quest and Super Mario. Here it is as described on Nintendo’s website:

The aim of Boom Street is to get rich quicker than your opponents through a mixture of property acquisition and property investment. Challenge up to three friends at home on the same Wii Remote or play against people from across the world over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to see who can increase their net worth the quickest. You can even utilise an in-game stock market element to purchase shares and earn dividends for extra wealth.

As you move around the board you will be able to buy shops to build a property portfolio along with collecting suits that can be cashed in at the bank to earn more money to invest. There are numerous ways to play, ranging from beginner settings to help newcomers learn the basics, to Standard Mode which offers deeper strategic options including the ability to manipulate the stock market.

Each of the boards are themed on favourite Mario and Dragon Quest locations, with fan-favourites such as Starship Mario from Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) and Alltrades Abbey from Dragon Quest both making an appearance. You can play as your own Mii™ character or also choose to play as one of over 20 playable characters from the Mario and Dragon Quest franchises, including Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Yoshi, Slime, Platypunk and Stella.

If you’re a financial whizz or mad with your money there‘s fun to be had and money to be made on Boom Street, only on Wii from 6th January. Time is money, so what are you waiting for?

Will you pick up Boom Street this holiday season?
